"Education is not the answer to the question. Education is the means to the answer to all questions." -- William Allin
My Classroom Mission
I believe that the purpose of education is to create an intellectually, morally, and physically well-rounded individual. As Horace Mann (often considered to be the father of modern American education) once said, “Education, then, beyond all other devices of human origin, is the great equalizer of the conditions of men—the balance-wheel of the social machinery.” My mission is to assist all students in becoming intellectually, morally, and physically well-rounded adults. It is my hope to instill the value of a good education in all my students.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.
